I would like two themes VERY MUCH:

(a) an Internet Explorer v9/10 theme. I know Firefox has one.
(b) I really miss the Qute theme from Firefox. One of my favourites.
Cheers,

There is a version of Qute that works with Fx 4 and above. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefo ... ustom-mod/ You might email the dev and see if he is interested in making a SeaMonkey version.

I doubt someone is going to make a new SeaMonkey theme. SM themes are less popular than Firefox themes and now thanks to this personas crap on the Amo custom Firefox themes are almost dead. We are losing downloads and users quite fast. I don't see people making a lot or any themes for these two browsers in the future but you can contact the developer and see if he's interested to make it compatible with SM. :)

can you please change the topic of this to something that DOESN'T sound like a NEW THEME was released?

I've clicked this topic loads of times, forgetting there is NO THEME here.

Seems kinda dumb for a request for a theme to be a 'hot topic' with only 2 responses and no files.

Au contraire. SeaMonkey is going to be the only thing worth making real themes for after Australis, because they have a much more reasonable and conservative approach to the UI, and haven't bought in to the "copy Chrome" idea that Firefox UX has. Ironically, its interface is far more like Firefox 3 than Firefox's is now.

Tried contacting the developer for Qute. He kindly responded, but will NOT be updating his theme for SeaMonkey. D'oh!

And technically speaking, the Qute theme is one that is not publicly licensed... which is why it was removed from Firefox to begin with.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Oh see, that I did not know. Interesting :)
So what is Australis? A new GUI engine for Mozilla?

No, it's the new UI for Firefox. In the old numbering scheme it would probably be called Firefox 5.0. It includes some major re-purposing of icons (back/forward/urlbar/stop/reload/go will be permanently merged together), a new menu-based system replacing the addons-bars, a rewritten Customization system, in-Content Options panel, and the removal of several older features like the downloads panel.

Man! I'm starting to really miss the original releases of Firefox. I hopped on board around v0.98 and stayed until 3.5. It was exciting and yet simpler in those "early" days. I really liked the 1.x and 2.x releases.
